Understanding Burgundy 21st March 2015 @ Mezzo 2-4pm
March 21, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$10
Burgundy is the home of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. From this region they produce some of the most exquisite and long lived wines in the world.
Viticulture has been shown to have started in the second century AD in what became the world’s most important wine region.
Monastic orders moved in and became important land holders over the early history. But more importantly the Cistercians noticed the difference between their different vineyards’ quality and started to keep the parcels separate. There was the birth of both the cru system in Burgundy and the concept of terroir.
Taste It For Yourself
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from one region. They can’t taste that different, can they? Yes they can! Your palate will be amazed by the flavour profiles that can be wrung from one variety. Or is that the terroir speaking through the grape variety?
Discover The Region
To gain a further understanding of the region and their style, there will be knowledgeable and passionate Burgundy experts on hand to explain the nuances of the region and its wines.
I expect this event to fill up. Saturday 21st March 2-4pm. @ Mezzo. Book via email, 0418 23 04 82 or scroll below.
